I was sent a product to review, and I've used it enough to give an accurate one. TooFaced (one of my favorite makeup brands) sent me their brand new Better Than False Lash System. Let me just go ahead and say that I'm not being paid to be nice about it, nor am I being paid to review it all. They were just kind enough to send it over and see what I have to say.
So, here's the skinny on the Better Than False Lashes. It's currently only available at Sephora, and you can find the link by clicking "via" under this little photo:
As you can see, it's a two piece system. It has an activating base and top coat, and the nylon fibers.
///First, you apply the activating mascara as a base. I apply it pretty thinly.
///Second, you apply the fibers just as you would with regular mascara. It's a really cool concept! It looks like cotton fibers in the tube, and it sticks to the base mascara.
///Third, apply the activating mascara over the fibers to cover the whiteness and fill everything out.
Pretty easy, right? Much easier than putting on real false lashes!
- Thickens the lashes beautifully
- Is not clumpy, surprisingly, even though it puts fibers on your lashes. Looks very natural.
- Lengthens by a LOT.
- Comes off easily with soap and water/eye makeup remover.
- Takes a long time to dry
- A bit sticky feeling on the eyes. However, actual false lashes, in my opinion, are even more annoying to the eyes, and you don't have to worry about them falling off!
- It's pretty pricey!
I would definitely say this is worth the money! They would be wonderful if you're in a hurry but want a more dramatic eye than your usual, and they're more comfortable than real falsies.
Have a great day, ladies!
